Davenport, Iowa, May 2, 2012 – This Sunday, May 6 over 200 volunteers will hit selected parks in Davenport to paint, mulch, clean, and pick up trash. The volunteers are from Bettendorf Christian Church and their volunteer effort is called the “Love Project”. Church members of all ages will be out from approximately 9:30am – 2:30pm to work on projects at Credit Island, Garfield Park and Marquette Park in Davenport. The volunteers will provide about 1,000 man hours in donated labor to Davenport Parks and Recreation.

Members of the church will forgo their regular service on Sunday morning for this annual volunteer project. “Church leaders contacted Davenport Parks and Recreation and asked if they could help out this year,” according to Ken Asta, Experience Manager for the department. Church members see the “Love Project” as a way for the church to give service to the Quad City community.

Davenport Parks and Recreation is always looking for other agencies or groups to volunteer for projects. Anyone interested in volunteering should call Ken Asta at 563-326-7859, or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
